500.01 Statement of Guiding Principles for Students

It is the goal of the board to develop a healthy social, intellectual, emotional, and physical self-concept in the students enrolled in the district. Each student attending school will have the opportunity to use the district and its education program and services as a means for self-improvement and individual growth. In so doing, the students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that assures each student the same opportunity.


The board supports the delivery of the education program and services to students free of discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital/parental/familial status, socioeconomic status, disability, religion, creed or genetic information.  This concept of equal educational opportunity serves as a guide for the board and employees in making decisions relating to District facilities, employment, selection of educational materials, equipment, curriculum, and regulations affecting students.


In the delivery of the education program, students will treat the employees with respect and students will receive the same in return. Employees have the best interests of the students in mind and will assist them in school-related or personal matters if they are able to do so. Students should feel free to discuss problems, whether school-related or personal, with the guidance counselor or other employees.


Board policies, rules and regulations apply to students while they are on District property or on property within the jurisdiction of the district; while on school owned and/or operated school or chartered vehicles; while attending or engaged in school activities; and while away from school grounds if the student’s misconduct will directly affect the good order, efficient management and welfare of the school district.
